Woodward, Earwood Lead Sagehens To Split

Thousand Oaks, Calif. - Alyssa Woodward had four goals and Ahsha Earwood had 16 saves as the Pomona-Pitzer Women's Water Polo team closed out the Cal Lutheran Invitational with a 7-5 win over Sonoma State.

Pomona-Pitzer also dropped an 8-6 decision to Azusa Pacific earlier in the day, as it moves to 8-4 overall on the season.

The Sagehens took a 5-1 lead into halftime after falling behind 1-0, as Woodward scored the first three goals, followed by goals from Megan Snow and Hope Grant. Pomona-Pitzer led 7-2 with 2:16 left in the third on Grant's second goal before Sonoma State scored three times in the fourth quarter, including a goal at the buzzer, to make the final score look a little closer.

Juniors Sarah Westcott and Mahalia Prater-Fahey each had two goals in an 8-6 loss to Azusa Pacific, which scored the first two goals of the game and never trailed. The Sagehens got the lead down to one goal on six different occasions, the last at 7-6 late in the third quarter on a Westcott goal, but never pulled even. Azusa Pacific scored the final goal of the third quarter and neither team scored in the fourth.

Pomona-Pitzer is back in action next weekend when it co-hosts the Convergence Tournament on Friday and Saturday for its first matches at Haldeman Pool.
